The Westpark public housing community was originally constructed in 1941 as temporary housing for shipyard workers and is now owned and operated by the Bremerton Housing Authority (BHA). In 2006 a new Westpark is envisioned as an urban mixed-use, mixed-income, pedestrian oriented community. In the new Westpark a variety of types and styles of housing will meet the needs of a range of income groups, and retail and commercial opportunities will satisfy everyday shopping needs.
Westpark Subarea Plan
The City Council adopted the Westpark Subarea Plan per Ordinance 4998 on February 7, 2006. The Westpark Sub Area Plan establishes the vision and the development standards for Westpark's transformation. The Subarea Plan is based on extensive community participation that took place during the spring, summer and fall of 2006. The Subarea Plan lays out a plan for roads, buildings, parks and open space, and high quality design in the new Westpark.
